Propagandhi Announce Tour With RVIVR And War On Women

Canada’s friendliest bunch of furious old punks, Propagandhi, have announced a tour with RVIVR and War on Women, giving it the spectacularly and intentionally silly moniker “FAILED STATES – American Re-Assault Revisited (Again) Pt. 2 The Sequel.” Besides being a trio of bands that are each pretty great at their brand of punk, all three also share a […]

Jessie Ware

Jessie Ware Is Back With Single “Tough Love”

British singer-songwriter and crooner Jessie Ware is back. After her debut album, Devotion, scored favorably among critics in 2012, Ware stopped by Zane Lowe’s BBC 1 Radio Show to share “Tough Love,” the first single off her upcoming sophomore album, the title of which is still unknown. We’re looking forward to hearing what else she will drop, especially considering […]

X-MEN-APOCALYPSE

‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Will Take Place In 1983

After the time-hopping of events found in Days Of Future Past, one might expect the next adventure featuring the X-Men to take place in the modern world. That does not appear to be the case, however, as a new interview with producer Simon Kinberg has revealed a far more retro setting for X-Men: Apocalypse. On […]

Game To Release ‘The Documentary 2’ In January 2015

Time flies. Game’s debut album, The Documentary, was released in early 2005. The album spawned a number of singles and solidified the West Coast rapper as a prominent member of the urban music community. Now, ten years later, Game will attempt to recreate the magic he found on that release by dropping The Documentary 2 […]

Studio Footage, Steak, And A Superfan In New Arctic Monkeys Video For “Snap Out Of It”

Arctic Monkeys have released another music video off their most recent album, AM. Following up the chic, anachronistic swagger of the “Arabella” video, this Focus Creeps (Trash Talk, King Krule, Girls) clip for “Snap Out of It” follows the IRL emotions of a woman who probably has a Tumblr full of Arctic Monkey gifs. The woman (actress Stephanie Sigman) spends much of […]

Alkaline Trio

Alkaline Trio To Perform All 8 Albums Over 4 Nights In 3 Cities Later This year

Alkaline Trio have released eight studio albums during their time together as a band, which makes developing a set list for any outing incredibly hard. As a band, you always want to play your new music, but as time goes on there is a growing demand for classic cuts as well from people who have […]

Godsmack and Seether Lead 2014 Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival Lineup

After attempts to go alternative in 2013 with a lineup that featured Alice in Chains, Jane’s Addiction, Coheed and Cambria and Circa Survive resulted in spotty ticket sales, it was widely expected that the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival would revert back to its tried-and-true format of booking a more mainstream lineup stacked with radio-friendly […]

Steve Martin Denies ‘Father Of The Bride 3’ Rumors

Last night, UTG was one of countless blogs who posted a story about Steve Martin joining Father Of The Bride 3. We sourced the information from NikkiFinke, which has proven to be highly reliable since its launch. Unfortunately, it seems they were wrong. Steve Martin took to Twitter earlier today to share his excitement about […]

Basement 2012

Basement Announce Surprise EP, Stream “Summer’s Colour”

When news broke earlier this year that Basement were planning a reunion tour, I’ll be the first to admit I was little disappointed to learn the band was not also planning to release more music. If you felt the same, fret not! Today, Basement and Run For Cover Records joined forces with our friends at […]

UTG INTERVIEW: Devo’s Gerald Casale Discusses Upcoming Tour, The Internet And EDM

“The prize to look for is originality and I don’t think that’s really a value that’s part of our culture now. I don’t think people want originality. They want exactly what they know. They’ve already heard it, and they want more of it.” According to Devo‘s founding member, Jerry Casale, the band was hardcore art […]
